Laura Tillman Brewer

February 7, 1926 ~ November 2, 2019 (age 93)


Laura Tillman Brewer, also known as Aunt Lala, Aunt Laura, Lady with all those boys, was called to be with our Dear Lord in Heaven on November 2, 2019.  Laura was born to the late Rena Tillman on February 7, 1926 in Hoffman, NC. She migrated to Durham, NC where she met and married the late Paul Brewer in August 1944. To their union 7 children were born. Laura was a homemaker known for her display of love for children by baby sitting and nurturing. She continued to provide the same love for children at church and throughout the community. 

Laura joined Russell Memorial CME Church where she was an active member of the Pastor's Aid Board, The Missionary Society and a dedicated Girl Scout Leader and Sunday School Teacher. She attended numerous CME conferences as a delegate throughout the years. With age came declining health but it did not destroy her faith. She was preceded in death by her daughter Laura Brewer Whitley and her son Gregory Brewer(lsmail Mohammed). Laura leaves to cherish her memories her sons, Lloyd, Earl(Regina}, Kirk, Anthony and Chris(Janice) Brewer of Durham, NC, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren nieces and nephews.

Laura would tell you that she may be giving out but she was not giving up! She will truly be missed by her family and all who were blessed to know her. We love you until we meet again. To God be the Glory!
